Subject: [twsocket] Scalable web-based application: with or without ICS andhow?
> Hello All!
> We have an application which exposes its internal data on the Internet
> through a web-server. Currently the MS IIS is used, but we need
> the application to be scalable, and the standard replication feature
> incorporated into IIS can't do the trick with the internal data.
> The data is continuously updated by an application server (COM-objects)
> in accordance with some business logic and user requests.
> The application supports sessions, and within a single session
> a user must be serviced at the same web-server, because the data
> is partially stored on the web-server during the session.
> So the question arises: is it possible to utilize ICS for building
> custom web-server with a scaling feature and how? Has anyone already
> made such a thing with ICS? Actually, I think of something like
> round robin architecture of web-servers around our main "data base",
> so to speak because this is not actually a relational data base.
> But I'm not familiar with this field of "distributed sockets",
> so any directions on how to distrubute incoming user connections
> between clustered ICS web-servers will be appreciated. Am I right
> that this can be implemented as a http-proxy (reverse proxy?)?
> Any other ideas?
> Best wishes,
